    A 21-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, despite life-saving measures performed. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner has identified him as Hunter Caleb Nachreiner.

    TMJ4's Mary Jo Ola spoke to David Jones who lives on Humboldt. He says he was taking his dogs out when he heard a commotion.

    "I could hear "Get him out of the car! Get him out of the car! And that's when I ran out here. At that point there wasn't much anybody else could do," Jones recalled.

    Jones says he saw people pull another person out of a parked car. Jones says he started flagging traffic to get them to stop.
